Kodak - propriamente conosciuta come Kodak Eastman - fu fondata in America nel 1888 e dominò il mondo "occidentale" della fotografia per i successivi 100 anni, costantemente in feroce rivalità con il giapponese Fuji. Analogamente a Fuji, l'avvento della fotografia digitale all'inizio del secolo ha causato notevoli problemi finanziari. Un recente tentativo di vincere nel mercato delle compatte è stato colpito dall'aumento della fotografia mobile e dal fallimento seguito nel 2012. Fortunatamente l'attività della fotografia è sopravvissuta con il nome Kodak Alaris - con sede nell'Hertfordshire, in Inghilterra - e hanno deliziato l'industria analogica promettendo supporto continuo per la produzione film e la promessa di riportare le vecchie emulsioni preferite.

I bought my first roll of Ektar to test out a Kodak 66 model iii folding camera. I’m new to this but I was delighted with the results. I shot this in diffuse morning light at the slowest speed I could manage handheld. Developed at Photofactory Ltd and scanned on V600. Lovely feeling when the first preview scan appears, in contrast to my memories of disappointment upon receiving prints back in the post when I was a kid! Either I’m getting better or the film is, most likely the latter. Will certainly be using this again.
Perfect for a sunny day or just chuck it on a tripod and enjoy the images when you get them, because this film is really fantastic.
Ran this roll through a Kiev 6c to try out a replacement lens and the in-prism TTL meter that I repaired a couple of weeks ago.
It was bright late afternoon sunshine and I was feeling a little frustrated that there's really very little colour around here apart from brown, green, and blue (when the sky's clear). But I needn't have worried because , true to its reputation, the Ektar really made the most of what there was!
There's a curious processing error that I need to trace which left a colour cast along the top edge of most of the film but that's for another day.
The shots were all metered using the camera's built-in meter so I have no idea how technically accurate they were (I'd compared it with my ancient Zeiss meter beforehand and it seemed "close enough". But the film seemed happy with the readings, so I am too.
In terms of processing, it dries SLOWLY and had a pretty severe longitudinal bow until completely dry - I was expecting it to be a pain to get into a holder. But, once fully dry it was pretty well flat again and scanned with no problems at all. The examples are all scanned on an Epson 600 @ 1200DPI, using Vuescan on auto levels, and no post processing apart from a very mild sharpening in Gimp.
Already liked this in 35mm, but in medium format it's something else. If it wasn't for the price I'm not sure I'd want to shoot anything else!
Ektar 100 in 35mm is wonderful with extremely fine grain. In this 120 size the grain is virtually undetectable.
My sample picture here was taken at low light (dusk) with a bit of a boring subject as a bit of a test picture.
When exposed correctly the colours are vibrant and beautiful, excellent for landscapes. The exposure is less forgiving than most other C41 films so correct metering is fairly necessary, but it's still much more forgiving than slide films (which could also be used in the same landscape scenarios). Overexposure is handled much better than underexposure but I find it best to stick to ISO100 and err on the side of overexposure - this can vary depending on personal taste though so by all means bracket some exposures and see how you like the look.
There is a bit of information circulating online regarding the reddish tint this film bestows making it unsuitable for portraits. I don't think you need to pay too much attention to that unless it's for formal or professional work (then again you might want the extra vibrance for your individual style or "look").
When scanning mine, yes there's sometimes a slight reddish tint in paler skin tones that needs correcting but in most cases it's not seriously objectionable, and can easily be corrected if needed.
I have heard a rumour that the film naturally doesn't have this tint and that it's the digital scanners trying to overcompensate for it. Whether that's true or not I don't know but I'd love to hear from some traditional darkroom printers to hear what their experience is and if their results are different.
A solid film choice for landscapes. Definitely not a casual walk-around film in my mind but it still offers some flexibility when you're thinking of doing some landscapes and not sure what else you might come across. Slide film on the other hand can be quite limiting in terms of flexibility - you might take 6 great landscapes then wonder what to do with the other 6 in your camera whereas with Ektar you have more choice over what you might do with the other shots.
Additional thought: I've used this film for nighttime long exposures before in and around a city where it picks up the night lights and colours beautifully. Something to keep in mind if you like cityscapes.
Definitely a good reliable stock to keep in the fridge. It receives my approval.
